Hello friend! While I am usually the first to don colors, once in a while I seek out a neutral. That is true today. I have been on the hunt for a camel gingham top for a while. That’s because I love gingham (duh!) and I wanted one that felt very “fall” to me. Many of my other gingham tops sometimes feel too summery. Luckily the J Jill gingham knit top in camel recently arrived at my doorstep. Let me show you how I style it.

Neutral Camel Gingham Outfit

For my first styling of the camel gingham top, I played it safe and paired it with a black skirt. The look is pretty and polished.

I accessorized the outfit with my favorite black booties and a structured flap bag.

For jewelry, I chose my favorite dainty pendant necklace and some rings.

The look was an excellent start to styling this camel gingham top. But I wanted more…

So I tried styling the top with color. I figured with the top being so neutral, I needed a bold color, such as a jewel tone. Therefore, I chose to pair the camel gingham with magenta. The result is certainly bold, but still cohesive.

I love how the magenta skirt pops against the neutral gingham.

Because of the color in the skirt, I decided to go for a basic black shoe. This time I chose a classic pump.

For this neutral gingham outfit, I chose to wear rose gold accessories, including this petite tassel necklace.

After my two initial stylings of this camel gingham top, I have confirmed my “need” for  a neutral gingham print shirt. Next I plan to wear it with a tan and pink plaid blanket scarf, similar to my burgundy and pink post. What ways would you wear this top?
